MCC Endgame Group 28/09/2011

Besides some of the regulars, we were pleased to have Sylvester Urban and Anatoli Sirota at the group. The subject of the evening was assessing positions with 2 minor pieces for each side. I'll post the positions we looked at, but try to pay particular attention to general ideas:

1. Who is better? And why? (It is white to play in all of these.)
2. Which minor pieces are good or bad?
3. Are there any plans which come to mind?
4. What are your candidate moves?

I'll come back to this with the game scores, and some of our ideas in 3 days time.......

  1. A very long 3 days!

    You should be covering the Monday night tournaments. This week the arbiter had boiling water thrown on him during a post-match analysis!
